Yeah it is too much, and also is says ("Dobro ohranjen") so it's not perfectly preserved, in translation this means minimum another 2000-3000 € investment in this car.

I have bought my last car for that

By the way, I have just read this article
http://www.noticiasautomotivas.com.b...ublica-tcheca/

Skoda Fabia (construction year 2000) has managed to do 1.000.000 km. Obviously, from Germany

2 questions for you:

How much do you think it's worth a VW Polo, 1.4 TDI, manual gearbox, with ~125k km, from 2007 or 2008?

Same question for a VW Golf 6, 1.9 TDI, 105 hp, manual gearbox, with ~125k km, from 2010?

If you mean Čingdao (Qingdao) and Šinhua (Xinhua), it's correct, because Chinese isn't written in Latin, so we can write whatever we want. I prefer pinyin, especially for less known Chinese cities, but at least everyone pronounces it correctly this way.

Polo 5500-6500 €
Golf 12.000-14.000 €

Any non-latin alphabet names are written phonetically in Slovenian language.
Which is logical, English is not our native language.

No, not since 1993 or so (I was the last generation to learn Croatian at school, and that was just 1 year (previous generations probably learnt it longer)).

I still remember the textbook.

In Italian chinese name are not transcripted phonetically, we use the english transliteration. Otherwise Shanghai would be written Sciangai, and that's hilarious and very very old-fashioned.

Old fashioned or not, try to pronounce correctly Xinjiang or Qingdao without the help of internet.

In Slovenian it would be written (however our lazy journalists, translating articles from English, often don't do that) Šindžjang or Čingdao. Problem is that pronunciation of pinyin is not the same as in plain English, which makes things confusing in most languages.
